Iris Hoarau solar power plant

  • Installed since: 2016
  • Installed capacity: 9 KWp
  • Address: Ecole Iris Hoarau, 23 rue de la Petite Île, 97400 Saint-Denis, La Réunion

In 2016, Albioma commissioned a solar power plant for onsite consumption on the playground roof at the Iris Hoarau school in Saint-Denis, Reunion Island.

Site description

In Saint-Denis, in the north of Reunion Island, Albioma and the Iris Hoarau school worked together to build a solar power-equipped playground shelter for on-site consumption. The PV roof has an installed capacity of 9 KWp and supplied 13.5 MWh of electric power to the school in 2018.

A project offering multiple benefits

The new solar rooftop supplies electricity to the school, provides shelter for students and is a very practical tool for discussing renewable energy issues with them. A digital metering system enables students to monitor their school’s power consumption in real time, providing invaluable insights relating to energy independence, a crucial issue in regions not connected to mainland power grids.
